With financial support from Afa Försäkring, teachers and students from the construction and civil engineering sectors were able to take part in free safety training at the Byggbranschen Safety Park.
What’s special about this park is that visitors are trained in the behaviours and attitudes that can affect safety in the workplace, based on situations and scenarios on a simulated 15,000 m² site with excavated shafts, work at height, vibrations, noise, etc. The concept comes from Finland, where there are currently two safety parks.
More than 90% of the teachers, pupils and students who visited the site felt that, after the training, they had gained knowledge about how to change their behaviour in the construction sector and prevent accidents and incidents.
